tDeUedep CoUeoc Jfetn VOL. LIV WELLESLEY, MASS., NOVEMBER 8, 1945 NO. 7 Choir to Hold Vespers At Sunday Night Chapel First of Traditional Series Features Soprano Solo, Organ Selections Fall Choir Vespers, the first of the four choir programs of the year, will be hell next Sunday, November 11 at 8:00 p.m. in the Chapel. Miss Margaret Maedon- ald, director of the choir and lec- turer in the Department of Music, announces that the program will include choral music representing almost every period since the six- teenth century. Miss Macdonald will play three organ solos, one by Bach and two by Vaughan Williams, the con- temporary composer. Dorothy Rose, '48, will sing the soprano solo of Mendelssohn's "O Come, Let Everyone That Thirsteth." Composers who will be repre- sented on the program are: Gallus and Byrd, sixteenth century; Schutz, the seventeenth century; Schubert and Mendelssohn, the nineteenth; and Loeffler Williams, Gu'on and Sowerbv, the twentieth. The Wellesley Choir gives four concerts on camous every year: in the fall, at Christmas time, in the spring and at Baccalaureate Service. The Fall Choir Vespers next Sunday should not be con- fused with the Candlelight Ves- pers to be held Sunday, November 18. Miss Macdonald feels that choir vespers is an opportunity for Wellesley music lovers to hear a concert right on their own campus. The program will be presented in the following order: QEfStti Preludes: Bryn Calfaria Vaughan Williams Rhosymedre Vaughan Williams The Choir: Darest Thou Now, O Soul Vaughan Williams Come Everyone That Thirsteth Mendelssohn At the Cry of the First Bird Guion (Continued on Page 6, Col. 3) Polish Dancers Will Entertain Prof- Lehmann Slavic Society To Take Post In Philadelphia Katharine Lee Bates Fund Brings Poet David Morton L-n wed be uancmg the ma- zurka!' said Mrs. Nina btevens '46, president of Slavic Society, which will hold its first open meet- ing as an officially recognized Wel- lesley organization November 19. The new society was founded last winter when a group of stu- dents expressed their desire to study the life, history, and culture of the Slavic peoples — Russians, Poles, Bulgarians, Czecnosiovak- ians, and Yugoslavians — through lectures, performances and ex- hibitions of native music and arts. According to the recently draft- ed constitution of the society, "Membership is open to all stu- dents who signify, in writing, a gen"ine interest in the purpose of the society." At this first meet- ing those interested will be given an opportunity to apply for mem- bership. The present officers of Slavic Society are: Mrs. Nina Stevens '46, president; Helen Storey Carlton '47, vice-president; Joan Brailey '47, secretary; Gerda Lewis '48, treas- urer; Corinne Smith, senior-at- large; Olga Laws, sophomore-at- large. Mr. Henry F. Schwarz and Mr. George V. Lantzeff of the De- partment of History are advisers to the organization. The members intend not only to observe performances of the culture of the Slavic nations, but also to become active participants in such performances. For its first meeting the society has in- vited a group of Polish singers and dancers to demonstrate their folk dances. After the demon- (Continued on Page 6, Col. 3) Sophomores to Convert Alum Hall Into Club '48 Sophomore Dance Committee If Wellesley College finds no Sophomores in class Monday, No- vember 12, it may just laugh it off and proceed accordingly. For '48's Jong-awaited prom on Satur- day evening, from eight to twelve, has been labelled by authorities the most "unprecedented affair since the founding of the college." A special sophomore concoction Called "Idiots' Delight" punch will add gaiety to the evening. With the slogan, "Make it a 1 al the Club '48," Sophomores ■ the leadership of Nancy A ring, head of the dance, have been working for weeks on the Committee heads are Sigie gauen, refreshments; Mickey rf.ielzer, date bureau; Connie An- derson, floor committee: Janet Van Arsdale, decoration; Taffy Tifft, publicity; Nancy Steffens, tickets. During the evening there will be a floor show exploiting '48 musical talent including Charlotte Stone, soloist, presenting original sours by Jean Emery. Chappie Arnold, of last year's Freshman Dance fame, will play at this informal program prom. Mrs. F. May Beggs, Head of House at Stone, and Mrs. H. T. Burnett, Head of Davis, will act as chaper- ones. Patronesses are Mrs. Horton, Miss Lindsay, and Miss Wilson. Perhaps at this point, the work- ings of the "glorified date bu- reau" should be explained. Under the motto, "we pick 'em, from there on it's up I . > yo«," this com- mittee assigns each person apply- ing a definite date from Harvard, M.I.T.. or the Officers' Club, bas- ing their matching on height. The following statement has been received from the President's Office : The Presbyterian Board of Christian Education is today an- nouncing the appointment of Asso- ciate Professor Paul Lehmann as Associate Editor of the Religious Book Department of the West- minster Press. He will take up his duties in Philadelphia at the be- ginning of the second semester, but he has arranged to return to Wel- lesley for several days each week to carry his courses, Biblical His- tory 204 and 305. This will involve some change in schedule of which the students registered for those two courses will be notified in the near future. It is neither necessary nor desirable to inauire at the Re- corder's Office before these notices are sent. Wellesley College sincerely re- grets the loss of Mr. Lehmann from its regular faculty. In the four years since he came to the Depart- ment of Biblical History, he has been a stimulating teacher and a highly valued colleague. His new position offers him an opportunity for leadership throughout the Church which he could not ignore. Wellesley will take pride in being associated with that leadership. EducationGroup Outlines Plans For This Year "Last year's Student Education Committee report will serve as a basis for constructive action for this year," declared Alice Bir- mingham '46, chairman, at the first meeting of the committee for 1945-46, November 2. On the immediate agenda, she stated, is an open meeting to be indexed within a week. The new committee is composed of eight Seniors, four Juniors, and three Sophomores, all of whom ap- plied for membership. Senior members of the committee, in ad- dition to the chairman, are Kay Sears Hamilton, "Bunny" Eagles. Polly Whitaker, Faith Lehman, Ida Harrison, Paula Fleer, and Joanne Burwell. The class of 1947 is represented by Peg Cogswell, Barbara Gormley. Angie Mills, and Mary Robert- son. Ruth Ferguson, Muriel Pfaelzer, and Phyllis Thompson are the 1948 members. The committee plans a panel discussion with C. A. on "Religion and Higher Education" and a poll on specific points suggested in the report of last year. New Committee To Rim Chapel The creation of a Student-Fac- ulty Committee on Chapel has been announced by Kay Warner, President of Christian Associa- tion. This committee was evolved from a suggestion made at the C. A. Open Board Meeting on October 24 that a group to corre- late and act upon campus opinion regarding chapel would be useful. The committee members are Mrs. Horton, Dean Wilson, Dean Lind- say, Betty Evans '47, Elizabeth Buchanan '48, and Ruth Fergu- son '48. In announcing the creation of the committee, Kay Warner urged that any students who have sug- gestions or criticisms regarding anything about Chapel address them to the student members of the committee. DAVID MORTON Display Models In Math Dept. Mathematical models given to the Wellesley Department of Mathe- matics by Mr. A. Harry Wheeler, former instructor in mathematical modeling at Wellesley, and new Professor of Mathematics at Clark University, Worcester, will be on display at an open house given by the Department November 14 at 7:30 in their offices. All mathe- matics students are invited. Professor Wheeler's models il- lustrate some of the age-old mathe- matical dilemmas such as the four color problem which he demon- strates by the use of transparent figures with colored figures inside. The Department will also display German and American models made by Wellesley students, old and modern versions of the stereoscope, surveying instruments, a sextant. Chinese and Japanese abacus, and examples of mathematics in na- ture. A departmental dinner in honor of Professor and Mrs. Wheeler will precede the open house. Resident Poet Will Lecture To Lit, Comp. Students On Amy Lowell, Frosl David Morton, poet-in-residence for two weeks, brought to Wel- lesley under the auspices of the Katharine Lee Bates Fund, will read selections from his works Monday, November 1, at 4:45 in Pendleton Hall. Mr. Morton, third visiting poet this year, lec- tured to Miss Elizabeth Wheeler Manwaring's class in modern poetry on the day of his arrival, November 6. "Amy Lowell" was the 'ubject of Mr. Morton's lecture. He will sneak again to Mis s Manwaring's class on Robert Frost, Tuesday, November 13, at 2:40 in Room 222 Founders and will also lecture on the sonnet to Miss Manwarine's versification class Thursday, No- vember at 1:40 in Room 317 Founders. Would-be Wellesley poets will have a chance to send their poems to Mr. Morton for criticism and to sign for conferences with him. Students are asked to send their poems a day in advance of their conference to Mrs. Wygant, Head of Tower Court, or directly to Mr. Morton. A list of confer- ences is posted on the English Literature Bulletin Board in Founders. Conferences are now scheduled for Friday, November 9, Wednesday, November 14, and Friday, November 16 at 2:00, 2:20, 2:40. 3:00, 3:20 and 3:40. If it should be necessary to can- cel any of the conferences, stu- dents will be notified. Mr. Morton has been a pro- fessor of English at Amherst Col- lege since 1924. Previously he worked on Louisville, Kentucky, newspapers and taught English and history in high schools. Dur- ing the years 1925-29 he was the compiler of the Amherst Under- graduate Verse and he has edited several anthologies of poetry in- cluding Six For Them. 1931, Shorter Modern Poems, 1932, and TJiis Is Their Acre, 1936. Among his volumes of original verse are Ships in Harbour, 1921, Harmf, 1924, A Man of Earth, 1930, Spell (Continued on Page 6, Col. 4) FREE PRESS World Federation, it is admitted by most of us, has long been the world's one hope. We have be- come increasingly aware of this through the war that we have just fought, and through the realiza- tion, brought home to us by to- day's papers, that a war won solves few problems. The papers were full of reports of international con- flicts in 1939, and the world fought a war. Papers are still full of in- ternational conflicts today! The atomic bomb, more than any- thing else, brings this point home to us. For two to five years our country might possess the "secret" of manufacture of this bomb, but all of us know that there is no scientific secret. Possession of the bomb is no security for peace. A war waged with atomic bombs is unthinkable. Our nation and other nations have reached the time when they can no longer afford to balance in continuous conflict. The risk of the next war is too great The world must be willine to give up something for a world peace for which their men have fought. Only a Wo«-1H Fe<Vr,qti"<i "'•,.■•• national sovereignty is capable of preserv- ing- future neace. The atomic nomb makes such a federation impera- tive. Lately, many of us at Welleslev have become imnressed bv the pos- sibility tint students, working as a pressure croup, rnav heln to effect the change in public onin»on neces- sary before a World Federation may be created. Our statesmen cannot act without a mandate from its people, and every girl at Wel- lesley can help give that mandate. With this in mind, the Forum Committee on World Federation was formed, working toward the following purpose: To help arouse public opinion to the point where people realize that national sovereignty in an atomic age is obsolete, and thus will de- mand a World Federation. Rath- er than to propose the mechanism ourselves, our purpose is to help make neonle Dsvchologically ready for a World Federation. We believe: I. That before the advent of the atomic age, World Federation was desirable because: A. In all recorded history, there have been only three hundred years of peace. B. The world is made ud of in- terdependent states; that which af- fects one affects all. C. Economic, social, and cul- tural activities have been carried out on a world wide basis: political activity is below this level. If. Since the invention of the atomic bomb, the necessity for World Federation has become im- mediate because the overwhelming maioritv of scientists atrree that: A. Other nations will be able to produce atomic bombs. R. No effective defense is pos- sible in atomic warfare. C.

The critical international situation is the internal indecision between international and nationalistic aims of each of the Big Three. The blunt alternative before each nation is another international war or a clear cut triumph of the will for international cooperation over nationalistic considerations. The United Nations Charter indicates a bare prominence of the cooperative will but a con- tinuing balance between national and interna- tional interests. The break-up of the ministers' meeting is proof of the continuance of this in- decision. The inevitable consequence is the separation of the Big Powers into two opposing groups. Obviously there can never be an equal balance of national and international interests. At any period in history one or the other must be heard above the other. Today the will to international cooperation must take the lead. The post-war spirit of people is optimistic until proved wrong. We hope that we see in very recent events a trend toward determined cooperation. Postponement of the new Far Eastern Commission meeting until a Russian delegate is sent indicates a recognition of the necessity of cooperation among oil nations. Prime Minister Attlee and President Truman will confer this week in an attempt to reach •lution concerning atomic bomb control that will be satisfactory to Russia. The determina- tion to cooperate and to value cooperation seems to be the new allied stand. Such b trend must be succeeded by out and out will for internatio] tion. Nations mil the bold step of relinquishing national aty for the sake of international unity. Only in such determination and coopera- me 1 i he 'Rus- sian problem 1 ecLInbisrei I on' can. ahold Niebuhr op- that ua- ii. The time bi 1 d tep to A will can find a way. World impera- FOR UPPERCLASSMEN ONLY Now that the terrors of six weeks quizzes have been survived by the freshmen, and '49 has- learned to distinguish Founders from Green, it is customary for their elders to contribute sage advice to the newest class. On looking the situation over, it seems high time that we laced the shoe onto our own foot. There is ample room for a fair exchange of advice be- tween both parties. Freshmen have an unbounded store of en- thusiasm—try borrowing some of it one day. Directed by careful thinking, that enthusiasm can carry to a surprising extent. You don't have to fall out of your chair in raptures over the private life of protozoa, but then again it might liven that eight-forty if occasionally you beat someone else to the draw with a new com- ment. You might even wake up to discover that you enjoy thinking out loud for a change. Most freshmen really want to like Welles- ley. Next time the eighth place at dinner is filled by an unfamiliar face, rouse yourself from gloomy remarks about the fourth paper in two weeks— your attitude is infectious but it needn't be poisonous. That freshman regards you all as pretty special people; you might as well take advantage of the fact even if the admira- tion is in some degree unwarranted. All of us have a few unrealized hopes in con- nection with our college career. There are things we could have done, and others that we shouldn't have done. The right word from you at the right time might serve to have those hopes realized by someone up-and-coming. If you think back, you can probably recall occa- siona on which some upperclassman encouraged your interest in a tough course, or persuaded you to try out for a new organization. That helped, didn't it? The most surprising day of all comes when a freshman approaches you for the first time not because you are head of an organization or have notes from History 102, but because you have become her friend. The discovery is iting, and not a little humbling. By and large, people aren't juniors or faculty or fresh- men, they are people. And it will be gratify- ing when you return after graduation to find people whom you really want to see. After all, nobody really wants to come dashing back just to look at the four walls of the room she used to have. Beyond the Campus by Michal Ernst 'U7, Forum Representative to Herald Tribune Forum I spent part of last week at the fourteenth annual Forum on Cur- rent Problems held in New York under the sponsorship of the New York Herald Tribune. New York- ers in particular have made much of these forums in the last few years, and the theory behind them has occasioned considerable com- ment. It was quite a shock, upon returning to Wellesley, to nnd how few had ever heard of them. Public forums as such call for no particu- lar attention, but the Tribune for- ums have developed several in- teresting features that have evoked interest and are, I think, worthy of comment here. In the first place, they cover not one but a number of subjects in- tegrated under one general head- ing, and with a tnoroughness that is unusual. The Tribune, by methods unknown, usually manages to produce an impressive roster of speakers including many of the world's leading minds and men. Along with the speakers, the au- dience is selected colleges, wom- en's clubs, federal and state offi- cials, prominent businessmen, lawyers, judges, leaders of in- terested and influential groups are invited. The purpose of the Forums goes beyond good publicity and I believe quite a sincere attempt is made to get an interested cross- section of the population to attend. Truman, Wainwright Speak The entire Forum runs several days in afternoon and evening ses- sions of approximately three hours each. There is plenty of pomp and ceremony but no words minced — and no intermissions! Public for- ums as ambitious as this are few and far between — well worth wait- ing for attending. This year's Forum centered around the "Responsibility of Vic- tory." The four major sessions covered Pacific Relations, the U. S. S. R., Europe and The United States in Relation to a United World. The speakers included Presi- dent Truman, Secretary of State Byrnes, Secretary of Labor Sc-hwel- lenback. Generals Marshall, Eisen- hower, Wainwright, and Chennault, Harold Stassen, Bill Mauldin, John Hersey and others of equal calibre. The vital necessity for cooperation FAIR AND WARMER We belong to that rare group of people who, contrary to Mark Twain, don't even want to do anything about Wellesley's weather except to enjoy it. Sunday's snow flurry came as a shock after our lingering Indian Summer. We still get a kick out of being the first one to wade through a new snow drift on the way to chapel in the morning. It is fun to battle up the hill along Christmas Tree alley when a blizzard is doing its best to blow us back down again. Feeling our cheeks sting and hear- ing our joints creak is a fairly pleasant price to pay for the view of Wellesley in winter dress. The usually hectic atmosphere becomes subdued and peaceful under a heavy cover of snow, especially on a starry night. Even when the snow turns to slush, and we can't decide whether to wear ski boots or rub- bers or maybe leaky saddle shoes, prospects aren't so bad. It is no time at all before we will be up on the roofs or out by the tennis courts, soaking up spring sunshine in tremen- dous doses to get the chill out of our bones <>re Generl Week is upon us. We begin to watch for those yellow and purple bushes to bloom, although we aren't botanical enough to call their names. Most of you will have the privilege of griping about Wellesley's weather for another year, or i oi three. But take a good look around while you mutter incantations And re- member the famous story of the Wellesley pro- jor who absently commented to her stu- • l • * » "U i ather, ian'1 it?" Indeed it i ill ]„■, because like it. in an atomic world keynoted many of the speeches; and the avowed intent of the Forum to encourage this through increased understand- ing of particular problems that will be this year's headlines shaped most of them. Audience Enthusiastic Hit of the first session was the young Nebraska flyer of Japanese descent with 58 missions to his credit — 28 of them over Japan. He spoke simply of the difficulty he had met convincine people of his sincerity, of the blind prejudice he had met, even when he was in uni- form, wearing two distinguished service crosses and overseas stripes. The effectiveness of his speech was increased by what he left unsaid. I certainly hope that the enthusiasm of the second ses- sion on Russia was really indica- tive of current public opinion. One of the first speakers, Dr. Simmons of Cornell University, made two particularly sound comments: to- day we know considerably less about the Russians than they know about us and have much poorer educational facilities both in our high schools and colleges. This fact, coupled with the "colossal inepti- tude (of the Russians) in present- ing themselves to the world," has built uo a attitude of wariness be- tween the United States and Rus- sia which must be broken down before we can hope for any_ work- able form of world cooperation. To the end of further under- standing, John Hersev and others gave brief talks on Russian crea- tive arts, medicine, economy, edu- cation and so forth. Hersey particu- larly presented some little known information on Russian literary and music guilas. Contrary to the customary editorial policy of the paper, the Tribune Forum was lib- eral in the tenor of its speakers and the response of its audience. If you are going to spend some time with the paper all of the speeches are well worth reading — those of Marshall, Truman, Bynes, and others were definitely policy making and a good indication of the lineup of a peace-time army and other issues of concern in the near future. The Tribune Forum and those like it are too good to miss now as well as after college. Free Press The Editors do not hold them- selves responsible for statements in this column.

To the Editor: By now everyone has had a chance to "oh" and "ah" over the wonderful murals in the Well. We heard a lot of talk about them last spring but to most of us they were a complete surprise this fall. They fit in perfectly; and most of us have given little thought to the time and energy that went into making the murals as ideal as they are. We would like to take this opportunity to express what every- one feels — gratitude to Peggy Bon- sal, Barbara Boole, Sally Russell, and Pat Zipprodt.

But as Mary Vardoulakis '44 sat in Mun- ger Saturday afternoon -amidst numerous yellow and green bound copies of her prize winning novel Gold iii the Streets it was quite evident that Mrs. Alexander's worries had been unfounded. She was very much alive. Awarded the Dodd-Mead Inter- collegiate Fellowship for the best novel written by a college stu- dent, Mary, after " being "feted and publicized" laughed off her success. As soon as her book came off the presses two weeks ago Monday, an entire store win- • dow of her home town, Hartford, ' was dedicated to Gold in the Ctreets. Mary described the dis- play as "a large manuscript in the centre with numerous auto- graphed copies of the book on either side and ads all over." On the first day of the exhibit she talked up to a group of people inspecting the display with ap- proval and commented, "Remark- able, isn't it?" "Yes," they re- plied, "remarkable." Before her identity was discovered she walk- ed away. Dbdd Mead Holds Party Upon the publication of her first book Dodd Mead broke all precedent by moving the entire publishing house, guests, literary people, and prominent public fig- ures up to Hartford for a recep- tion in her honor at Heublein's. It was a cocktail party which, according to the authoress, is "just the thing- for books." The party included Mr. Dodd, Vice President of Dood-M'eadrPublishing Company, Mr. Brownley.

"All- American" is the only higher rating the association gives. Twice a year the A.C.P. furnish- es to its members, which include most American university and col- lege publications, a detailed evalu- ation of their work, with constnic- tive suggestions for improvement. The editorial page of News was especially commended, with "ex- cellent" ratings also for general coverage, vitality, war effort cov- erage, content and organization of news stories, editing, typography, and printing. izabeth Manwaring and Miss Edith C. Johnson of the Department of English Composition at Wel- lesley, Miss Barbara McCarthy of the Department of Greek, Irene Peterson '46 and Jeanne Maurer '46, both Greek students. Next week Mary and all past winners of Dodd Mead Fellowships will be entertained at. a dinner at the St. Regis Hotel in New York city. Miss Manwaring will attend this dinner. On her visit to Wellesley last weekend Mary spoke to two classes in English Composition about Gold in the Strict.-. Her story of an immigrant family from Crete who settled in a Massachusetts mill town is built on material from her Greek background. The book deals with the exodus of a family from Greece, their reaction to life in the new world and their gradual trans- formation into Americans, still cherishing their Greek traditions, but loyal to their new country. During the writing of her novel Mary was helped greatly by the expert page by page criticism of Mr. Dodd who'took a personal in- terest in the progress of her work. "He taught me freedom in my writing," Mary said. "I had been so much with my characters that I was even afraid to let them go off to brush their teeth without going with them. Mr. Dodd told me to let my characters go and to trust to the imagination of my readers." Now Plans Travel. Writing Mary's future plans are ambi- tious. She intends to go to Greece even if she has to go by freighter. There she will write another book on the Greek people and their political resistance movement. Hoping to establish herself there as a foreign correspondent in order to support herself while she writes, Mary vows to "gather the material even if I have to sneak into parliament and stay there and write the book until I* am kicked out." Mary has already spoken on two radio programs, a Hartford sta- tion which she described Gold in the Streets, and a Boston station on fhe "Life of Greece" hour Mary Will return to Wellesley on Novem- ber twenty-second to speak at a War Bond Rally.

French Underground publications bear witness to this fact. Several student newspapers and pamphlets, published secretly during the occupation, have been sent to News by the Foreign In- formation Research Division. The words of Turenne, one of Louis the Fourteenth's most skill- ed generals, that "there must not be a man at rest in France as long as there is a German on this side of the Rhine" formed the I home of these journals. They kept patriots informed of their own operations, of world events, of General Charles DeGaulle's moves. They warned of expected Nazi arrests for patriotism, and announced the deportment of Un- derground and other civilian work- era. Essor, a weekly student paper, attempted to waken the interest of other students. It gave them "the elements of thought," and declared that they must" use their learning- in order to bp prepared for the epoch ahead. To restore France as a great nation, Essor cried out to the students to think, to have a clear, firm will. "To enlighten those who tomorrow will reconstruct France, to acquire a real common spirit tn reflect and resolve all these problems in the true French spirit" was its goal. Regularly exposing Nazi Propa- ganda, Essor kept alive plans for tomorrow. It described the role and the need of students in the Resistance, and advocated "not an hour of work for the Boches." Hope for future liberation and a stable, democratic government was assured. The Temoignage Chretien put out pamphlets every year fight- ing Nazi power and its aims to destroy the soul of France. The Temoignage Chretien studied the methods of pagan offensives, cru- sading against the power of dark- ness, and giving their readers the help of the Church in keeping faith. Combat cited as its objectives "one chief: DEGAULLE one fight: FOR OUR LIBERTIES." It recorded that it was working "for a Republic that dares to be a republic, a socialist state that dares to make social reforms, a state that does not dare to attack the trusts (of the people) and would not have the time nor the power to destroy the Republic." Combat denounced a political sys- tem that placed the executive at the mercy of politicians who would change the ministry every two weeks. "It is not in this disorder that real democracy lives" it de- clared. Always assuring the people of a strong Resistance, always fight- ing Nazi strength, always giving correct information on facts col- ored by Nazi propaganda, these publications served to keep France alive and alert in its darkest mo- ments. Perry is beginning to question the advisability of the new policy of letting everyone taking crew have a chance at coxing. One never knows when a new cox will become drunk with her power. The other day the brazen command of, "Crew Overboard!" came echoing across Lake Waban.

Stresses Dangers of Escapism, Hysteria "World Federation per se will not work during our generation," said Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr of the Union Theological Seminary, in New York City, during an inter- view on campus and in a speech on "World Federation" in Boston, November 4. Dr. Niebuhr consid- er- world federation a mere ideal. He cited the San Francisco Con- ference as proof that national sov- ereignty is too strong to be dis- carded. For several reasons Dr. Niebuhr considers world federation unfea- sible. It might be possible were there either a larger number of great powers or only one great power, but in our present situation he sees two forces striving against each other, Russia vs. the United States and Britain. Because of this situation Dr. Niebuhr feels that the groups struggling for world federation are seeking the long range goal before they se- cure its preliminary short range problem of establishing an under- standing with Russia. "We can have war with Russia within the next ten years," stated Dr. Niebuhr without hesitation. Russia is apprehensive of Britain and the United States and as her apprehension grows Britian and the United States become ap- prehensive in return. "Thus the vicious circle whirls." The United States and Britain on the otheT hand fear communism. Moreover Dr. Niebuhr stated that after fighting a, war for righteous principles we find ourselves com- promising with vindictiveness.

"My work in Canada was en- tirely different from my work here." said Miss Cecile de Banke, Chairman of the Department of Speech, of her summer at Queen's University in Kingston. "I worked only with adults," she explained. "My pupils were 26 adults from MISS CECILE DE BANKE all over Canada, four of whom had been on the beaches on D-day. They were men of action. It was the first time in their lives that they had ever been able to think of college; one of them said to me, 'I never thought I'd walk on left lifeless on the printed page. They think of speech training- as a very necessary part of educa- tion, that academic attainment is inherent in the spoken word, and that facility in speech can only be attained through technical train- ing." Miss de Banke first taught in South Africa. A member of a rep- ertory theater, she was in Cape- town doing "every type of work on the stage and sometimes doing 22 plays m 2.3 weeks" when, "in the middle of Galsworthy's Strife," she had an attack of acute ap- pendicitis and had to remain in the hospital for four months. Stranded in Capetown When she recovered, the boat which she was to take for Eng- land under her contract had sailed, and she was stranded in Cape- town without passage back. "It was (hen that I started to teach," she explained. "I already had my degrees. I taught at the Univer- sity of Capetown, the Teachers' paining College, Technical Col- lege — that was adult education , and at the same time I had my own school and was doing speech work in two convents, and Cape- town High School. I became Sec- Kt.ny and Program Director for the Capetown Repertory Theater. ■ in.

These men were part of the 17,000 veterans to whom Can- ada is giving a free education; many of them were extra-mural students because facilities had not yet been set up for their living. ''But." continued Miss deBanke, "never have 1 seen men with such power of concentration. They were thirsting for knowledge, es- pecially knowledge of art, poetry and music." Speech An Art According to Miss de Banke, a great deal of the difference in teaching in Canada is the "com- pletely different attitude" toward speech as an art there. "The spoken and written word," she de- clared, "are much more closely allied. There is a choral speech festival in Toronto to which ap- proximately 80 schools send rep- resentative choirs.

Inter-Faith groups meet once or twice a month, depending upon the wishes of the individual group. Topics for discussion are also the choice of the members of each group, and usually pertain to pres- ent-day religious problems, church doctrines, ritual and customs. Old members who wish to retain their membership as well as those who wish to join as new members are urged to sign. WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, NOVEMBER 8, 1945 Mungerites Play Hosts To Spooks Riotous Skits Introduced By Barbara Chapline: Ghosts Run Wild "Do you dare venture in to din- ner Hallowe'en night?" was the challenge hurled by Joey Reiman, Munger House president, on the fateful eve reserved for spooks and goblins. Munger Hall, to whom any holiday is cause for celebration, came dressed for the occasion as wolves, apples, dogs, poets, union- ites, and anything else that wasn't applicable to Hallowe'en. It was a Munger party, and "anything went." As everyone was settling down to dinner, admiring the Hallowe'en decorations, a convention arrived late and Ellen Watson, the Queen of Hearts announced Tita St. Ger- maine, the jack, and Mary Robin- son, the king, at meeting of the clubs. "The cards are laid, and we'll have to deal with them," they groaned, as they introduced friends —the cute tricks, the club foot, the blackwood club, the country club, dueces wild, and finally, Lee Tucker, slick in a silky dress, ar- rived as the very sophisticated Vanderbilt club. The party conven- ed to tables that were "Reserved for Convention." As dinner was beginning, Bar- bara Chapline, tfne mistress of cere- monies, took compassion on Emmie Allen and friends, who, as man's best friend, were plaintively bark- ing that "we can't eat until we take our faces off." The dog skit was in- troduced, and Jean Muir explained to an appreciative chorus of yelps that "man must take compassion on the dog, who serves him best. Half way through the meal, the children of Munger Hall, Mrs. Alexander, Mrs. Baxter, and Miss Enerleman, lamented in chorus at beine excluded from the party. "Seven Seniors" Jane Goodman and friends, next presented the Poet's Reading, which was follow- ed by Gail Greenhalerh, Ida Harri- son and others, who presented Pyramus and Thisbe, from the "great tragedy, Midsummer Nioht's Dream, b" William Shake- speare, famous French writer," Pvramus went to Harvard and Thisbe went to Wellesley in this modernized interpretation.

Dirlam '46 Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward's de- lightful comedy of an adventure into the world of ghosts and ecto- plasm, is a play calculated to warm the hearts of those who like the sophisticated humor and brittle dialogue which Coward under- stands so well. It is, further- more, a play which is ideally suit- ed to production by a college dra- matic group. The female parts are varied and well within the range of the amateur actress; at the same time, there is sufficient imaginative challenge in the hand- ling of the stage directions to in- terest the little folk who run around collecting properties and painting scenery. What Barnswallows did with this play was, for the most part, very well considered. The stage- set was the realistic and finished affair which we have come to ex- pect in Wellesley productions. The make-up committee may pride it- self in the successful creation of the silvery-green glow which suf- fused the materialized spirits of Charles Condomine's wives. And special mention should be given Evelyn Wakefield for her striking design on the cover of the pro- grams. Mardette Edwards, a Barn vet- eran with an excellent speaking voice, lent a great deal to the play as a whole by her interpretation of the role of Elvira. Miss Ed- wards supplemented her speeches with charming gestures and grace- ful cross-stage movements which succeeded in making Elvira seem the blithe and provocative spirit she was meant to be.

Upperclassmen are invited to attend an informal talk and dis- cussion Tuesday at 7:30 in Tower Court.

Perhaps, if more time can be found to prepare the next play, that difficulty will be overcome.

But she finally decided on the United States. "I arrived without friends and not a great deal of money. I had to do something. Oh, the unbelievable experiences I could tell you of in these first few months! The radio refused to take me. They'll think we>re pro-British or something,' the man said. I had thought of Hollywood, too; there was a job of work to be done there, but that was a closed door. I finally found work through the English-speaking Un- ion at The Masters' School in Dobbs Ferry.

YI-PAO MEI C.A., who will arrange for per- sonal appointments. President Since 1942 Dr. Mei has been acting presi- dent, or chancellor, of Yenching University since 1942. He receiv- ed his B.A. at Oberlin College, Ohio, in 1924 and his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago in 1927. Since then he has been acting president of Oberlin - in - China, 1934-6, dean of the college of arts and letters at Yenching Univer- sity, 1936-8, director of the Kan- su Science Educational Institute at Lanchow, 1938-40, and head of the secretariat, Chinese Indus- trial Cooperatives, 1940-41. Two books by Dr. Mei are to be found in the Classics Room of the college library. The Ethical and Political Works of Mao-tse, one of Probsthain's Oriental Se- ries, published in 1929, is a trans- lation of these works from the original Chinese. A companion Forum's International Relations Club and Domestic Affairs Group discussed plans to devote future discussions to the subject of World Federation in a meeting November 1. A report by 550 scientists who worked on the bomb was studied. The report stated that without doubt other nations can produce the atomic bomb and that there is no defense against it now nor is it likely that an adequate defense will ever be developed. Mr. Norman Cousins' article from the Saturday Review of Lit- erature was also cited. Mr. Cousins asserts that while man thinks in terms of the world in social, economic and moral fields, he does not in politics. War, he explains, is only the expression of competi- tive impulses which may be chan- neled in other directions. It is im- perative to progress from the na- tional man to the world man. The only other alternative, he concludes, is the abolition of all things related to science, and a consequent rever- tion to life as it was in 10,000 B.C. Ginny Guild, '46, Head of Forum, conducted the meeting in the absence of Betsy Stevenson '47, chairman of the I.R.C. and Olga Mindlin '47, chairman of the Do- mestic Affairs Group. It was agreed that the topic of a World Government, its devices, organiza- tion and specific powers be dis- cussed during the next few meet- ings. o Slavic Society - (Continued from Page 1) stration the society members will learn the elementary steps of Polish dances. This same principle of observ- ing and learning will be applied to music, art, and poetry. The society will hear holiday music at a Russian church in connection with the study of Christmas songs at the second meeting of the se- mester. An exhibition and a lecture on Russian art will be presented at the opening meeting of next se- mester, while Bulgarian life and culture will be discussed at the J°^rne Mao-tse . . .

Miss de Banke toured Canada, lecturing, in the fall of 1941. "I even got up to the sub-arctic," she said. This summer she hopes to go home to England for a visit. In the mean- time as Chairman of the Depart- ment of Speech, she is finding her hands full. Her special interest at the present time is the estab- lishing of the new speech clinic which gives aid to students on a voluntary basis through private conferences. next fall the entire college will be reestablished there.

"The committee already comprises over one hundred and fifty members, thoroughly or- ganized, and really functioning." Today and tomorrow the group will circulate petitions through- out the college, to be sent im- mediately to President Truman, who begins discussions with P r i m e Minister Attlee and Premier King, Monday, on the problems occasioned by the atomic bomb. Every student and every member of the faculty who believes in World Federation is urged to sign. Over a hundred letters have been sent to major colleges and universities throughout the United States, in an endeavor to estab- lish a strong student movement immediately. The letter outlined the purpose of this group (stated in a Free Press in today's Nexvs, as well as offering specific sug- gestions for arousing campus in- terest. An inter-collegiate con- ference on the subject of World Federation will be held here in the near future. Dotty Nessler suggests that every girl who wishes to help spread her belief that national sovereignty in an atomic age is obsolete write a letter for publi- cation to her home town paper. A form letter has been drawn up by the committee, which may give ideas on what to write.

TheNews reported this week that amount of money spent by the "average WeHesley girl" last year, $2010.94. 216 budgets ranged from $1156 to $3500. The reoort includes the statement that "not more than one family in three in the U. S. has an income or more than $3000 a year." The groun average for recreation was $73.42.

According to Dr. Niebuhr, the only authority strong enough to keep world federation in one piece would be the historical and tradi- tional prestige of one of the two power groups involved and neither group may claim such prestige. Moral authority, he said, is ob- viously not strong enough to con- trol a world council. Military au- thority is only partial at best. o Morton - (Continued from Page 1) Against Time, 1936, All In One Breath, 1939.

Today's meeting will be a consideration and examination of some of the existing plans, in- cluding the United Nations Or- ganization. The World Federa- tion committee stresses, however, that its purpose is not to propose the mechanism for a World Fed- eration, but rather to help make people psychologically ready for one. Several new committee heads have been appointed, with whom interested students should get in contact. The Inter-Collegiate side, under Virginia Beach, is di- vided into Publicity with outside papers, under Sylvia Crane, '47, 8nd Contact, headed bv Johnny Watkins, '47.

Susan Morse is in charge of the Wellesley activity, Around the Vil Hi there! We'd just like to ignore the Boston election and make a few choices of our own. There's no doubt about it HILL AND DALE are elected as having the most scrumptious collection of dickies in town. They have a se- lection which includes frilly eye- let pique numbers as well as very tailored and classic ones with your favorite Peter Pan collar. Running on the ballot with the dickies are some very gay fur mittens and matching ear muffs. They come in pink, blue and white and can be had for a very reasonable sum. Our choice for all around good service is LE BLANC TAXI. Wellesley 1600 is the number to call if you're in a last minute dash to catch the train. LE BLANC TAXI will pick you up at your house and take you to the train right on the dot. Everybody we know has a few white elephants which their Great Aunt Hettie has given them. If you want to turn these dust col- lectors into money trot them over to the CANDLEWICK CABIN. CANDLEWICK CABIN, which is Wellesley's community furniture and clothing exchange, is located near the Ford Motor Company. They will be glad to pay you cash for used furniture or clothing. -Only 57 more days until Christ- mas and if you're wise you'll be- gin to think about how you're going to get your large Christ- mas presents home. Needless to say it's a trifle difficult to man- age the skis you bought for junior and the fire screen for mother on the train. COLLEGE TAXI has solved this problem very neatly for you. They will pack or crate such cumbersome items for a mere pittance and relieve you of all the fuss and bother. Bunny. THE POWDER PUFF 69 CENTRAL ST. Ha!r-Styllng - Waving Cutting .
